Personal Description:

I am originally from the UK and am currently working as a Research Fellow in Philosophy and Psychiatry at McGill University. I have published my research in peer-reviewed journals and presented at conferences around the world. I have a PhD, MA, and BA in philosophy.

Tutoring Experience:

For the last six years, I have taught classes in philosophy at McGill University. I have taught philosophy of mind, existentialism, ethics, feminist philosophy, and logic.

I have also taught in the Humanities Department at Vanier College (pre-university program and continuing and adult education). Before, that I taught in sixth form in the UK (16-18 years).

Tutoring Approach:

I work to make sure my students have a thorough understanding of the material through a variety of different learning techniques: short written responses; question and answer sessions; creating new examples to explore difficult concepts. It is important to me to understand the different obstacles to understanding faced by different students and to work through those together. Having graded many essays at university and college level, I have a clear idea of what teachers and professors and looking for, and how students can improve the clarity and quality of their written work.
